Hinchinbrook Youngster Sets The Bar

Hinchinbrook juvenile Unite And Conquer set the bar high for spring two-year-olds in Melbourne when he led home a Magic Millions trifecta in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

An $80,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale buy for Blueblood Thoroughbreds, Unite And Conquer Horseform was never headed to win easily from Sun City (Zoustar) and Grand Scholar (Wandjina).

The Maribyrnong Trial Stakes was the first two-year-old race held in Victoria this season and ensures Unite And Conquer will be favoured to win the G2 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington on November 3.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Unite And Conquer will then be set to head to Queensland for January’s $2 million Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).

Unite And Conquer (Hinchinbrook x Maglissa by Magnus) provided the late Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock) with his 16th individual stakes winner.

He is the only named foal from Maglissa, a three-time winning daughter of the G1 winner Danglissa (Danzero).

At Doomben the Rothesay colt Guntantes made a perfect start to his career in Brisbane’s first 2YO race of the season to add a new winner to the family of prolific producer Cantantes.

Cantantes, by Just Awesome, died in February but trainer Robert Heathcote believes Guntantes Horseform could be her best foal yet after he won in emphatic fashion by almost four lengths.

Cantantes has already produced the Heathcote-trained stakes winners in Excellantes Horseform and Funtantes Horseform.

"We lost Cantantes in February after a long career at stud but she might have left us something special," Heathcote said. "Maybe he will be the best.

"We kept him and didn't put him through the sales so hopefully he can win a few more QTIS races.”

The first Brisbane 2YO fillies race was won by the Liam Birchley-trained Courseshewill, the Unencumbered filly who had won on debut at Toowoomba two weeks ago.

Courseshewill Horseform is raced by a syndicate headed by Birchley's biggest client Mark McLean.

Courseshewill (Unencumbered x Corsaire) was a $170,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale buy from Three Bridges Thoroughbreds by Birchley Racing.

In Adelaide the Lindsay Park-trained Sebring youngster Sebrakate upset fancied stablemate Fanaar (Stratum) in South Australia's first 2YO race of the season at Morphettville.

Sebrakate Horseform (Sebring x Kakakakatie) was a $150,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale buy for Lindsay Park Racing from Baramul Stud.

R1 FLEMINGTON 6 October 2018
Maribyrnong Trial Stakes 2 , 1000m
Race Synopsis: Unite And Conquer gave his rivals a galloping lesson here with a dominant, all-the-way win. Jockey Stephen Baster jumped him into the lead from the outset, led by a more than a length at the crossing where he raced a shade greenly but past the 400m and finding the rail again the colt smoothed his action and went for the line. Inside the 200m he had them in trouble and Baster kept him going and they widened their lead to win easily. Sun City, wider out, made his run from the 400m, moved up to third then second at the 100m but was never going to catch the winner. Grand Scholar lay second at the 400m, still there at the 200m then battled away to hold third. Memphis Rock came out of the pack late to finish quite well for fourth.
